Art Adventure Week Is Here!!

It’s almost time for Art Adventure Week!  We’ll kick off the festivities with our annual Family Art Night on Thursday, January 27 via Zoom.  Ms. Yurth will be hosting a “paint night” type activity, and it’s fun for the entire family including former and future mountain lions.  You can reserve your spot by emailing Ms. Yurth at jyurth@oldadobe.org.  Please include the name/s of your student/s, name/s of teacher/s, and how many canvasses you will need.  Supply bags will be sent home with the oldest student.  The reservation cut off date is January 24 as supply bags must be made and distributed in time for the event.

 hen, Art Adventure will be off to a great start.  We’ll get going school-wide on Friday, January 28 with lots more fun during the week of January 31 - February 4.  Art Adventure Week is our school-wide celebration of all things art!  The week includes assemblies and interactive workshops by artist and storyteller, Ane Carla Rovetta.  Students will silkscreen their own t-shirts. The highlight of the week is Art Rotation Day where students will be in mixed-age groups (TK-6) that will rotate through three classrooms to learn about different artists such as O’Keefe, Picasso, Monet or mediums such as pastels, mosaic, collage, watercolor, clay sculpture, fabric design. This is always a very exciting week for our students, and we are creating a memorable experience for our entire school community.
